</TABLE>

         Inventories of ores on leach pads and in the milling process are
valued based on actual costs incurred to place such ore into production, less
costs allocated to minerals recovered through the leaching and milling
processes.  Dore' inventory includes product at the mine site and product held
by refineries.  All other inventories are stated at the lower of cost or
market, cost being determined using the first in, first out and weighted
average cost methods.


NOTE B:

         Effective January 1, 1994, the Company changed its method of
accounting for debt and equity securities by adopting Statement of Financial
Accounting Standards (FAS) No. 115, "Accounting for Certain Investments in Debt
and Equity Securities".  FAS No. 115 requires the use of fair value accounting.
The Company has classified its short term investments and marketable securities
as available for sale, according to the provisions of the new pronouncement.
Accordingly, unrealized holding gains and losses on such securities are
excluded from earnings and reported as a separate component of shareholders'
equity until realized.


NOTE C:

         On April 30, 1993, the Company acquired Cyprus Gold New Zealand
Limited, for approximately $54 million in cash.  The acquisition has been
accounted for as a purchase.  The following consolidated results of the
Company's operations assume that the acquisition took place at the beginning of
the period presented.

NOTE D:

       During the first quarter, the Company effected an offering of $100
million ($96,750,000 net to the Company after underwriter discount) of 6 3/8%
Convertible Subordinated Debentures Due 2004 which are convertible into shares
of Common Stock on or before January 31, 2004, unless previously redeemed, at a
conversion price of $26.20 per share.  The Company is required to make semi-
annual interest payments.  The debentures are redeemable at the option of the
Company on or after January 31, 1997.  The debentures have no other funding
requirements until maturity.  The debentures mature January 31, 2004.


NOTE E:

       Effective January 1, 1993, the Company changed its method of accounting
for income taxes by adopting Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (FAS)
No. 109, "Accounting for Income Taxes."  FAS No. 109 requires an asset and
liability approach to accounting for income taxes and establishes criteria for
recognizing deferred tax assets.  Accordingly, the Company adjusted its
existing deferred income tax assets and liabilities to reflect current
statutory income tax rates and previously unrecognized tax benefits related to
federal and certain state net operating loss carryforwards.  The Statement also
contains new requirements regarding balance sheet classification and prior
business combinations.  Hence, the Company adjusted the carrying values of
Coeur Rochester, Inc. acquired in 1986 and CDE Chilean Mining Corp. acquired in
1989 to reflect the gross purchase value previously reported net-of-tax.

       The cumulative effect of the accounting change on prior years at January
1, 1993 is a non-recurring gain of $5,181,188, or $.34 per share, and is
included in the accompanying Consolidated Statement of Operations for the six
months ended June 30, 1993.  Other than the cumulative effect, the accounting
change had no material effect on the operating results for the three months and
six months ended June 30, 1993.

       The Company's tax expense for the second quarter and first half of 1994
results primarily from state tax liabilities.  There is no provision for
Federal income taxes in the second quarter or first half of 1994 due to net
operating losses incurred.


NOTE F:

       Certain reclassifications of prior year balances have been made to
conform to current year classifications.


NOTE G:

       Other than as stated in the notes above, in the opinion of management,
the foregoing unaudited financial statements include all adjustments,
consisting of normal recurring accruals, necessary to a fair presentation of
the results of operations of the periods shown.

Item 2.    MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION
           AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS                                  


GENERAL

       The results of the Company's operations are significantly affected by
the market prices of gold and silver which may fluctuate widely and are
affected by many factors beyond the Company's control, including interest
rates, expectations regarding inflation, currency values, governmental
decisions regarding the disposal of precious metal stockpiles, global and
regional political and economic conditions, and other factors.  The Company's
currently operating mines are the Rochester Mine, which it wholly owns and
operates, and the Golden Cross Mine, in which the Company has an 80% operating
interest.

       The depressed level of silver prices led to the suspension of mining
activity at the Galena Mine in July 1992 (during which month the average price
of silver was $3.95 per ounce) and at the Coeur Mine in April 1991 (during
which month the average price of silver was $3.97 per ounce).  Any resumption
of mining at those mines will require the affirmative decision of Asarco,
Incorporated, the operator of those mines, to recommence operations there.

       On July 19, 1994, the Company's Board of Director's approved
construction of the Fachinal Project.  Construction of the new mine is expected
to take 18 months to complete and is expected to produce, in its first year,
41,000 ounces of gold and 2.6 million ounces of silver.  Total project
construction is expected to cost $41.8 million.

       The Company plans to continue its developmental activities at the
Kensington Property.  A production decision relating to the Kensington Property
is subject to the approval by the Company and its joint venture partner, a
market price of gold of at least $400 per ounce and the receipt of certain
required permits.  The market price of gold (London final) on August 5, 1994
was $378.60 per ounce.  With respect to the permits, the Company is unable to
control the timing of their issuance.  However, it is anticipated that an EPA
Technical Assistance Report will be furnished to the Army Corps of Engineers in
early September 1994, which will lead to the issuance by the Corps of its
section 404 permit in due course.

       The Company plans, in connection with its evaluation of potential
acquisition candidates, to focus primarily upon mining properties and
businesses that are operational or expected to become operational in the near
future so that they can reasonably be expected to contribute to the Company's
near-term cash flow from operations.





                                      -11-
<PAGE>   12
       The significant increase in the Company's mining exploration expenses in
the first half of 1994 over the prior year's comparable period reflects the
Company's efforts to expand its ore reserve base.


RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

       Three Months Ended June 30, 1994, Compared to Three Months Ended 
       June 30, 1993

SALES AND GROSS PROFITS

       Sales of concentrates and dore' increased by $3,328,425, or 21%, for the
second quarter of 1994 over the same quarter of 1993 and was primarily
attributable to increased production as a result of the Golden Cross Mine
operating for the entire quarter in 1994 compared to a partial quarter in 1993
and an increase in metals prices.  The Golden Cross Mine was acquired on April
30, 1993.  Silver and gold prices averaged $5.38 and $381.44 per ounce,
respectively, in the second quarter of 1994 compared with $4.26 and $360.41 per
ounce, respectively, in the second quarter of 1993.  In the second quarter of
1994, the Company produced 1,419,181 ounces of silver and 31,523 ounces of gold
compared to 1,475,750 ounces of silver and 30,603 ounces of gold in the second
quarter of 1993.

       The cost of mine operations for the second quarter of 1994 increased by
$2,233,831, or 15%, above the prior year's comparable quarter and is primarily
attributable to the acquisition of the Golden Cross Mine.  Mine operations
gross profit as a percent of sales increased from 10% in the quarter ended June
30, 1993 to 14% in the quarter ended June 30, 1994.  As a result, gross profits
from mine operations increased by $1,094,594, or 69%.

       The cash costs of production per ounce of gold at the Golden Cross Mine
amounted to $269.04 per ounce in the quarter ended June 30, 1994, compared to
$229.92 per ounce in the prior year's comparable quarter.   The increase was
primarily attributable to the presence of a harder grinding ore in the open pit
requiring more milling and chemicals in the processing.  The cash costs of
production in the second quarter of 1994, however, decreased from $299.83 per
ounce cash costs incurred in the first quarter of 1994.  The cash costs of
production per ounce of silver on a silver equivalent basis at the Rochester
Mine amounted to $3.65 in the quarter ended June 30, 1994, compared to $3.51
per ounce in the quarter ended June 30, 1993.

       The sales of manufactured products, which consist of lightweight
flexible hose and duct and metal tubing, increased by $298,832, or 12%, in the
second quarter of 1994 above the second quarter of 1993.  Cost of manufacturing
increased by $265,770, or 12%, compared with the second quarter of 1993.  As a
result, gross profits from manufacturing increased by $33,062, or 12%, in the
second quarter of 1994 from the prior year's second quarter.





                                      -12-

OTHER INCOME

       Other income increased by $1,595,982, or 111%, the second quarter of
1994 compared to the second quarter of 1993.  The difference is primarily the
result of an increase in the level of the Company's cash and securities
portfolio and unrealized foreign exchange gains on outstanding contracts at
June 30, 1994.

       As a result of the above, the Company's total income increased by
$2,723,638, or 82%, in the second quarter of 1994 compared to the second
quarter of 1993.

EXPENSES

       For the second quarter of 1994, total expenses increased by $2,037,644,
or 38%, over the prior year's comparable quarter.  The increase is primarily
attributable to (i) an increase in interest expense of $1,664,351, or 131%,
primarily resulting from the issuance of $100 million principal amount of
6-3/8% Convertible Subordinated Debentures in January and February 1994, (ii)
an increase of $827,667, or 214%, in mining exploration expenses incurred in
connection with the Company's efforts to increase ore reserves, and (iii)
increases in administration and general corporate expenses.

INCOME (LOSS) BEFORE TAXES AND ACCOUNTING CHANGE

       As a result of the above, the Company's loss before income taxes and the
cumulative effect of a change in accounting amounted to $1,307,089  for the
second quarter of 1994 compared to a loss before income taxes and the
cumulative effect of a change in accounting of $1,993,083 for the second
quarter of 1993.  The Company reported income tax expense (benefit) for the
second quarter of 1994 of $27,710 compared to $(985,946) for the same period of
1993.  As a result, the Company reports a loss before the cumulative effect of
a change in accounting of $1,334,799, or $.09 per share, for the second quarter
of 1994 compared with $1,007,137, or $.07 per share, for the 1993's comparable
quarter.

NET INCOME

       As a result of the above, the Company reports a net loss of $1,334,799,
or $.09 per share, for the second quarter of 1994 compared with $1,007,137, or
$.07 per share, for the second quarter of 1993.


       Six Months Ended June 30, 1994, Compared to Six Months Ended June 30,
       1994

SALES AND GROSS PROFITS

       Sales of concentrates and dore' increased by $13,877,489, or 54%, for
the six months ended June 30, 1994 over the same period of 1993 and was
primarily attributable to increased production as a result of the Golden

Cross Mine operating for the entire period in 1994 compared to the same period
in 1993.  Silver and gold prices averaged $5.33 and $382.87 per ounce,
respectively, in the first six months of 1994 compared to $3.96 and $344.84 per
ounce, respectively, in the same period in 1993.  During the first six months
of 1994, the Company produced 2,929,578 ounces of silver and 63,100 ounces of
gold compared to 2,812,119 ounces of silver and 47,750 ounces of gold in the
first six months of 1993.  The increase in silver production is due to
increased production at the Company's Rochester Mine.  The increase in gold
production is due to the Company's acquisition of an 80% interest in the Golden
Cross Mine effective April 30, 1993.

       The cost of mine operations in the first six months of 1994 increased by
$10,609,525, or 45%, over the first six months of 1993. As a result, gross
profit from mine operations increased by $3,267,964, or 157%, in the first six
months of 1994 from 1993's comparable period.  Mine operations gross profit as
a percent of sales increased from 8% in the six months ended June 30, 1993 to
13% in the six months ended June 30, 1994.  The increase was primarily
attributable to the increases in silver and gold prices during the six months
ended June 30, 1994, from the prior year's comparable period.

       The cash costs of production per ounce of gold at the Golden Cross Mine
amounted to $283.26 per ounce in the six months ended June 30, 1994, compared
to $229.92 in the prior year's comparable six month period.   The increase was
primarily attributable to the presence of a harder grinding ore in the open pit
requiring more milling and chemicals in the processing.  As stated above,
however, the cash costs incurred in the second quarter of 1994 were lower than
the cash costs incurred in the first quarter of 1994.  The cash costs of
production per ounce of silver on a silver equivalent basis at the Rochester
Mine amounted to $3.64 per ounce in the six months ended June 30, 1994,
compared to $3.59 in the six months ended June 30, 1993.

       Sales of industrial products in the first six months of 1994 increased
by $664,404, or 14%, compared to the first six months of 1993.  Cost of
manufacturing increased by $679,922, or 16%, in the first half of 1994,
compared to the prior year's comparable period.  As a result, gross profit from
manufacturing for the first six months of 1994 decreased by $15,518, or 3%,
compared to the first six months of 1993.

OTHER INCOME

       Interest and other income in the first half of 1994 increased by
$1,900,611, or 70%, compared to the first half of 1993.  The increase was
primarily due to an increase in the level of the Company's cash and securities
portfolio and unrealized foreign exchange gains on outstanding contracts at
June 30, 1994.

       As a result of the above, the Company's total income increased by
$5,153,057, or 97%, in the six months ended June 30, 1994, over the prior
year's comparable quarter.

EXPENSES

       Total expenses in the first half of 1994 increased by $3,939,474, or
38%, over the prior year's comparable six-month period.  The increase is
primarily attributable to (i) an increase in interest expense of $2,682,986, or
97%, primarily resulting from the issuance of $100 million principal amount of
6-3/8% Convertible Subordinated Debentures in January and February 1994, (ii)
an increase of $1,062,719, or 120%, in mining exploration expenses incurred in
connection with the Company's efforts to increase ore reserves, and (iii)
increases in administration and general corporate expenses.

INCOME (LOSS) BEFORE TAXES AND ACCOUNTING CHANGE

       As a result of the above, the Company's loss before income taxes and the
cumulative effect of a change in accounting amounted to $3,897,097 in the first
six months of 1994 compared to $5,110,680 in the first six months of 1993.  The
Company reported income tax expense (benefit) of $35,001 for the first six
months of 1994, compared to ($2,122,860) in the first six months of 1993.  As a
result, the Company reported a net loss before the cumulative effect of a
change in accounting of $3,932,098, or $.26 per share, in the first six months
of 1994, compared to a net loss of $2,987,820, or $.20 per share, in the first
six months of 1993.

CHANGE IN ACCOUNTING

       Effective January 1, 1993, the Company changed its method of accounting
for income taxes by adopting the mandatory Statement of Financial Accounting
Standards (FAS) 109, "Accounting for Income Taxes."  FAS 109 requires an asset
and liability approach to accounting for income taxes and establishes criteria
for recognizing deferred tax assets.  Accordingly, the Company adjusted its
existing deferred income tax assets and liabilities to reflect current
statutory income tax rates and previously unrecognized tax benefits related to
federal and certain state net operating loss carry forwards.  The cumulative
effect of the accounting change on prior years at January 1, 1993, resulted in
a non-recurring gain of $5,181,188, or $.34 per share, and is included in the
results of operations for the six months ended June 30, 1993.

NET INCOME (LOSS)

       As a result of the above, the Company reported a net loss of $3,932,098,
or $.26 per share, in the first six months of 1994, compared to net income of
$2,193,368, or $.14 per share, in the prior year's comparable six-month period.


LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

       The Company's working capital at June 30, 1994 was approximately $185.5
million compared to approximately $107.6 million at December 31,





                                      -15-

1993.  The ratio of current assets to current liabilities was 9.5 to 1 at June
30, 1994, compared with 6.0 to 1 at December 31, 1993.

       The increase in the Company's working capital at June 30, 1994 compared
to December 31, 1993 is primarily attributable to the Company's sale in January
and February 1994 of an aggregate of $100,000,000 principal amount of 6 3/8%
Convertible Subordinated Debentures Due 2004 (the "Debentures").  The
Debentures were issued by the Company in connection with an offering to
"qualified institutional buyers" as defined in Rule 144A under the Securities
Act and to certain non-U.S. persons in reliance upon Regulation S under the
Securities Act.  The Company plans to use the approximately $95.7 net proceeds
from such offering for general corporate purposes, including the possible
acquisition of, or investment in, additional precious metals mines, properties
or businesses, and for possible developmental activities on new or existing
mining properties.  The Company's acquisition efforts are primarily focused
upon operating precious metals mines and precious metals properties or
businesses that are expected to become operational in the near future.  The
Company currently is engaged in the review and investigation of opportunities
for expansion of its business through acquisitions, investments or other
transactions.  While preliminary agreements have been entered into with respect
to certain proposed acquisitions, the consummation of such acquisitions is
subject to significant contingencies.  The Company invested the proceeds of the
above offering in interest-bearing marketable securities and money market
obligations, and plans to continue such investments pending the use of the
proceeds of that offering as discussed above.

       Net cash provided by (used in) operating activities for the first six
months of 1994 was $2,313,186 compared with $(3,318,430) for the first six
months of 1993.  A total of $96,646,684 of cash was used in investing
activities in the six months of 1994, compared to $111,274,702 in the first six
months of 1993.  Of the $96,646,684 used in investing activities during the
first six months of 1994, $102.1 million relates to the purchase of investment
grade intermediate term investments.  The Company's financing activities
provided $92,411,494 of cash during the first six months of 1994 compared with
$3,171,199 used in financing activities for the first six months of 1993.  As a
result of the above, the Company's net cash decrease for the first six months
of 1994 was $1,922,004 compared with a net cash decrease of $117,764,331 for
the first six months of 1993.  The net cash decrease for the first half of 1993
was primarily due to the use of $111,274,702 in investing activities.

       In view of the recent, significant increase in the Company's capital
resources described above, the Company terminated its $38 million revolving
line of credit agreement with a syndicate of banks in June 1994.  On June 8,
1994, the Company entered into a credit agreement with Seattle First National
Bank providing for a maximum of $10 million letter of credit.

       For the quarters ended June 30, 1994 and 1993, the Company expended
$1,236,766 and $806,367, respectively, in connection with environmental
compliance activities at its operating properties.  At June 30, 1994, the
Company had expended a total of approximately $4.3 million on environmental and
permitting activities at the Kensington property, which expenditures have been
capitalized as part of its development cost.

       On June 24, 1994, the U.S. District Court for the District of Idaho
approved the proposed settlement (the "Settlement") of Kassover v. Coeur
d'Alene Mines Corporation et al. (the "Lawsuit"), a class action instituted
against the Company and others in 1990.  Pursuant to the Settlement, a total of
up to 220,083 shares of Common Stock will be issued by the Company in exchange
for the claims of the members of the plaintiff class (the "Claimants") and
their counsel.  The number of such shares was determined by dividing $4 million
by the average daily closing price of the Common Stock for the five business
days preceding the "fairness hearing" relating to the Settlement held on June
16, 1994.  The Company issued 66,025 shares to counsel for the claimants in
late July 1994, and plans to issue the balance of up to 154,058 shares
following the processing of the Claimants' claims, which is expected to be in
September or October 1994.

       On July 19, 1994, the Company's Board of Directors approved the
construction of the Fachinal project following the completion by the
independent engineering firm of Fluor Daniel Wright of a detailed feasibility
study.  Pursuant to that study, the cost to complete Fachinal is estimated to
be $41.8 million.  The Company plans to seek funding for that construction on a
project financing basis.

                         REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES
         To induce Bank to enter into this Agreement, Borrower represents,
warrants, and covenants to Bank as follows:
         5.1     Existence.  Borrower is in good standing as a corporation
under the laws of the state of its incorporation, has the power, authority, and
legal right to own and operate its property or lease the property it operates
and to conduct its current business; and is qualified to do business and is in
good standing in all other jurisdictions where the ownership, lease, or
operation of its property or the conduct of its business requires such
qualification.
         5.2     Enforceability.  The Loan Documents, when executed and
delivered by Borrower, shall be enforceable against Borrower in accordance with
their respective terms.
         5.3     No Legal Bar.  The execution, delivery, and performance by
Borrower of the Loan Documents, and the use of the loan proceeds, shall not
violate any existing law or regulation applicable to Borrower; any ruling
applicable to Borrower of any court, arbitrator, or governmental agency or body
of any kind; Borrower's articles of incorporation or bylaws; any security
issued by Borrower; or any mortgage, indenture, lease, contract, undertaking,
or other agreement to which Borrower is a party or by which Borrower or any of
its property may be bound.
         5.4     Financial Information.  By submitting each of the financial
statements required by Subsection 6.6(a) and 6.6(b), Borrower is deemed to





                                     - 7 -

represent and warrant that: (a) such statement is complete and correct and
fairly presents the financial condition of Borrower as of the date of such
statement; (b) such statement discloses all liabilities of Borrower that are
required to be reflected or reserved against under GAAP, whether liquidated or
unliquidated, fixed or contingent; and (c) such statement has been prepared in
accordance with GAAP.  As of this date, there has been no adverse change in
Borrower's financial condition since preparation of the last such financial
statements delivered to Bank which would materially impair Borrower's ability
to repay the Obligations.
         5.5     Liens and Encumbrances.  Borrower and each Subsidiary has
sufficient title to each of its assets in order to conduct its respective
business as presently conducted and as contemplated to be conducted; all of the
leases, subleases, licenses, claims, rights, concessions, and agreements
material to the business of Borrower or any Subsidiary, and under which
Borrower or any Subsidiary holds any properties, are in full force and effect
and neither Borrower nor any Subsidiary has any notice of any material claim of
any sort that has been asserted by anyone adverse to the rights of Borrower or
any Subsidiary under any such lease, sublease, license, claim, concession, or
agreement, or affecting or questioning the rights of Borrower or such
Subsidiary to the continued possession of the premises under any such lease,
sublease, license, claim, concession, or agreement.
         5.6     Litigation.  Except as disclosed in writing to Bank, there is
no threatened (to Borrower's knowledge) or pending litigation, investigation,
arbitration, or administrative action which may materially adversely affect
Borrower's business, property, operations, or financial condition.
         5.7     Payment of Taxes.  Borrower has filed or caused to be filed
all tax returns when required to be filed; and has paid all taxes, assessments,
fees, licenses, excise taxes, franchise taxes, governmental liens, penalties,
and other charges levied or assessed against Borrower or any of its property
imposed on it by any governmental authority, agency, or instrumentality that
are due and payable (other than those returns or payments of which the amount,
enforceability, or validity are contested in good faith by appropriate
proceedings and with respect to which reserves in conformity with GAAP are
provided on Borrower's books).
         5.8     Employee Benefit Plan.  Borrower is in compliance in all
respects with the provisions of ERISA and the regulations and published
interpretations thereunder.  Borrower has not engaged in any acts or omissions
which would make





                                     - 8 -
<PAGE>   12
Borrower liable to the Plan, to any of its participants, or to the Internal
Revenue Service, under ERISA.
         5.9     Misrepresentations.  No information, exhibits, data, or
reports furnished by Borrower or delivered to Bank in connection with
Borrower's application for credit misstates any material fact, or omits any
fact necessary to make such information, exhibits, data, or reports not
misleading.
         5.10    No Default.  Borrower is not in default in any Loan Document,
or in any contract, agreement, or instrument to which it is a party.
         5.11    No Burdensome Restrictions.  No contract or other instrument
to which Borrower is a party, or order, award, or decree of any court,
arbitrator, or governmental agency, materially impairs Borrower's ability to
repay the Obligations.

                 (e)      Defaults on Other Obligations.  There exists a
         default in the performance of any other agreement or obligation for
         the payment of borrowed money, for the deferred purchase price of
         property or services, or for the payment of rent under any lease,
         whether by acceleration or otherwise, which would permit such
         obligation to be declared due and payable prior to its stated
         maturity; and such default continues for 30 days after Borrower
         receives written notice thereof from the creditor so affected;
                 (f)      Guaranties.  Any guarantor of all or any portion of
         the Obligations revokes or attempts to revoke such guaranty, whether
         with respect to future transactions or outstanding Obligations, or
         otherwise breaches the terms and conditions of such guaranty;
                 (g)      Loss, Destruction, or Condemnation of Property.  A
         portion of Borrower's property is affected by any uninsured loss,
         damage, destruction, theft, sale, or encumbrance other than created
         herein or is





                                     - 13 -

         condemned, seized, or appropriated, the effect of which materially
         impairs Borrower's financial condition or its ability to pay its debts
         as they come due;
                 (h)      Attachment Proceedings and Insolvency.  Borrower or
         any of Borrower's property is affected by any:
                          (i)     Judgment lien, execution, attachment,
                 garnishment, general assignment for the benefit of creditors,
                 sequestration, or forfeiture, to the extent Borrower's
                 financial condition or its ability to pay its debts as they
                 come due is thereby materially impaired; or
                          (ii)    Proceeding under the laws of any jurisdiction
                 relating to receivership, insolvency, or bankruptcy, whether
                 brought voluntarily or involuntarily by or against Borrower,
                 including, without limitation, any reorganization of assets,
                 deferment or arrangement of debts, or any similar proceeding,
                 and, if such proceeding is involuntarily brought against
                 Borrower, it is not dismissed within 60 days;
                 (i)      Judgments.  Final judgment on claims not covered by
         insurance which, together with other outstanding final judgments
         against Borrower, exceeds $1,000,000, is rendered against Borrower and
         is not discharged, vacated, or reversed, or its execution stayed
         pending appeal, within 60 days after entry, or is not discharged
         within 60 days after the expiration of such stay; or
                 (j)      Government Approvals.  Any governmental approval,
         registration, or filing with any governmental authority, now or later
         required in connection with the performance by Borrower of its
         obligations under the Loan Documents, is revoked, withdrawn, or
         withheld, or fails to remain in full force and effect, except Borrower
         shall have 60 days after notice of any such event to take whatever
         action is necessary to obtain all necessary approvals, registrations,
         and filings.
         7.2     Remedies Upon Default.  If any Default occurs and is
continuing, Bank may at its option, by notice to Borrower:
                 (a)      Terminate Commitments.  Terminate Bank's commitment
         to issue new Letters of Credit;
                 (b)      Suspend Commitments.  Refuse to issue new Letters of
         Credit until any Default has been cured;





                                     - 14 -
<PAGE>   18
                 (c)      Setoff.  Exercise its right of setoff against any
         cash collateral pledged to Bank or any other deposit accounts of
         Borrower with Bank; and/or
                 (d)      All Remedies.  Pursue any other available legal and
         equitable remedies.  
All of Bank's rights and remedies in all Loan Documents shall be cumulative and 
can be exercised separately or concurrently.
         7.3     Alleged Default by Bank.  In the event that Borrower at any
time concludes that Bank has defaulted in any respect under this Agreement or
any of the Loan Documents, Borrower shall promptly give notice thereof to Bank
and provide Bank with a period of not less than 30 days in which to cure such
alleged default; provided, however, that in no event shall this Section 7.3 or
the Borrower's giving such notice to Bank extend the time period(s) granted to
the Borrower to cure any Default under Section 7.1(d).  Failure of the Borrower
to provide such notice to Bank shall waive the Borrower's right to assert a
claim against Bank for such alleged default.

                                 MISCELLANEOUS
         8.1     Manner of Payments.
                 (a)      Payments on Nonbusiness Days.  Whenever any event is
         to occur or any payment is to be made under any Loan Document on any
         day other than a Business Day, such event may occur or such payment
         may be made on the next succeeding Business Day and such extension of
         time shall be included in computation of interest in connection with
         any such payment.
                 (b)      Payments.  All payments and prepayments to be made by
         Borrower shall be made to Bank when due, at Bank's office as may be
         designated by Bank, without offsets or counterclaims for any amounts
         claimed by Borrower to be due from Bank, in U.S. dollars and in
         immediately available funds.
                 (c)      Application of Payments.  All payments made by
         Borrower shall be applied first against fees, expenses, and
         indemnities due; second, against interest due; and third, against
         principal, with Bank having the right, after a Default which is
         continuing, to apply any payments or collections received against any
         one or more of the Obligations in any manner which Bank may choose.

<PAGE>   19
                 (d)      Recording of Payments.  Bank is authorized to record
         on a schedule or computer-generated statement the date and amount of
         each draw under a Letter of Credit, and all payments of principal and
         interest.  All such schedules or statements shall constitute prima
         facie evidence of the accuracy of the information so recorded.
         8.2     Notices.  All notices, demands, and other communications to be
given pursuant to any of the Loan Documents shall be in writing and shall be
deemed received the earlier of when actually received, or two days after being
mailed, postage prepaid and addressed as follows, or as later designated in
writing:


BANK:                                        BORROWER:
                                             
SEATTLE-FIRST NATIONAL BANK                  COEUR D'ALENE MINES CORPORATION

Attention:  Kurt L. Walsdorf                 Attention:  James Sabala


         8.3     Documentation and Administration Expenses.  Borrower shall
pay, reimburse, and indemnify Bank for all of Bank's reasonable costs and
expenses, including, without limitation, all accounting, appraisal, and report
preparation fees or expenses, all recording or filing fees, and all normal,
reasonable, and customary attorneys' fees (including the allocated cost of
in-house counsel) and legal expenses incurred in connection with the
negotiation, preparation, execution, and administration of this Agreement and
all other Loan Documents, and all amendments, supplements, or modifications
thereto, and the perfection of all security interests, liens, or encumbrances
that may be granted to Bank.  Borrower acknowledges that any legal counsel
retained or employed by Bank acts solely on the Bank's behalf and not on
Borrower's behalf, despite Borrower's obligation to reimburse Bank for the cost
of such legal counsel, and that Borrower has had sufficient opportunity to seek
the advice of its own legal counsel with regard to this Agreement.
         8.4     Collection Expenses.  The nonprevailing party shall, upon
demand by the prevailing party, reimburse the prevailing party for all of its
costs, expenses, and reasonable attorneys' fees (including the allocated cost
of in-house counsel) incurred in connection with any controversy or claim
between said parties relating to this Agreement or any of the other Loan
Documents, or to an alleged tort arising out of the transactions evidenced by
this Agreement, including those incurred in any action, bankruptcy proceeding,
arbitration or





                                     - 16 -
<PAGE>   20
other alternative dispute resolution proceeding, or appeal, or in the course of
exercising any judicial or nonjudicial remedies.  
         8.5     Waiver.  No failure to exercise and no delay in exercising, 
on the part of Bank, any right, power, or privilege hereunder shall operate as 
a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right, power, 
or privilege hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof, or the 
exercise of any other right, power, or privilege.  Further, no waiver or 
indulgence by Bank of any Default shall constitute a waiver of Bank's right to 
declare a subsequent similar failure or event to be a Default.
         8.6     Assignment.  This Agreement is made expressly for the sole
benefit of Borrower and for the protection of Bank and its successors and
assigns.  The rights of Borrower hereunder shall not be assignable by operation
of law or otherwise, without the prior written consent of Bank.
         8.7     Merger.  The rights and obligations set forth in this
Agreement shall not merge into or be extinguished by any of the Loan Documents,
but shall continue and remain valid and enforceable.  This Agreement and the
other Loan Documents constitute Bank's entire agreement with Borrower, and
supersede all prior writings and oral negotiations.  No oral or written
representation, covenant, commitment, waiver, or promise of either Bank or
Borrower shall have any effect, whether made before or after the date of this
Agreement, unless contained in this Agreement or another Loan Document, or in
an amendment complying with Section 8.8.  ORAL AGREEMENTS OR ORAL COMMITMENTS
TO LOAN MONEY, TO EXTEND CREDIT, OR TO FORBEAR FROM ENFORCING REPAYMENT OF A
DEBT ARE NOT ENFORCEABLE UNDER WASHINGTON LAW.
         8.8     Amendments.  Any amendment or waiver of, or consent to any
departure by Borrower from any provision of, this Agreement shall be in writing
signed by each party to be bound thereby, and shall be effective only in the
specific instance and for the specific purpose for which given.
         8.9     Mandatory Arbitration.
                 (a)      At the request of either Bank or Borrower, any
         controversy or claim between Bank and Borrower, arising from or
         relating to this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents, or
         arising from an alleged tort, shall be settled by arbitration in
         Seattle, Washington.  The United States Arbitration Act shall apply
         even though this Agreement is otherwise governed by Washington law.
         The proceedings shall be administered by the American Arbitration
         Association under its commercial rules of arbitration.  Any
         controversy over whether an issue is arbitrable shall be





                                     - 17 -
<PAGE>   21
         determined by the arbitrator(s).  Judgment upon the arbitration award
         may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties.  The
         institution and maintenance of an action for judicial relief or
         pursuit of an ancillary or provisional remedy shall not constitute a
         waiver of the right of either party, including the plaintiff, to
         submit the controversy or claim to arbitration if such action for
         judicial relief is contested.  For purposes of the application of the
         statute of limitations, the filing of an arbitration pursuant to this
         subsection is the equivalent of the filing of a lawsuit, and any claim
         or controversy which may be arbitrated under this subsection is
         subject to any applicable statute of limitations.  The arbitrator(s)
         will have the authority to decide whether any such claim or
         controversy is barred by the statute of limitations and, if so, to
         dismiss the arbitration on that basis.  The parties consent to the
         joinder of any guarantor, hypothecator, or other party having an
         interest relating to the claim or controversy being arbitrated in any
         proceedings under this Section.
                 (b)      Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection 8.9(a),
         no controversy or claim shall be submitted to arbitration without the
         consent of all parties if at the time of the proposed submission, such
         controversy or claim arises from or relates to an obligation secured
         by real property.
                 (c)      No provision of this subsection shall limit the right
         of Borrower or Bank to exercise self-help remedies such as set-off,
         foreclosure, retention or sale of any collateral, or obtaining any
         ancillary, provisional, or interim remedies from a court of competent
         jurisdiction before, after, or during the pendency of any arbitration
         proceeding.  The exercise of any such remedy does not waive the right
         of either party to request arbitration.
         8.10    Construction.  Each term of this Agreement and each Loan
Document shall be binding to the extent permitted by law and shall be governed
by the laws of the State of Washington, excluding its conflict of laws rules.
If one or more of the provisions of this Agreement should be invalid, illegal,
or unenforceable in any respect, the remaining provisions of this Agreement
shall remain effective and enforceable.  If there is a conflict among the
provisions of any Loan Documents, the provisions of this Agreement shall be
controlling.  The captions and organization of this Agreement are for
convenience only, and shall not be construed to affect any provision of this
Agreement.

         8.11    Termination of Agreement.  All obligations of Borrower under
this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect until (a) no Letters of
Credit remain outstanding, (b) all Obligations have been paid in full and (c)
Bank has no further obligation to issue Letters of Credit; at which time all
obligations of both Bank and Borrower under this Agreement shall terminate, and
all security interests held by Bank shall be deemed released.  Bank shall at
such time, upon demand by Borrower, execute all documents of release or
satisfaction necessary to clear title to any collateral.

AMOUNT OF GUARANTY.  THE AMOUNT OF THIS GUARANTY IS UNLIMITED.

CONTINUING UNLIMITED GUARANTY.  FOR GOOD AND VALUABLE CONSIDERATION, COEUR GOLD
NEW ZEALAND, LIMITED ("GUARANTOR") ABSOLUTELY AND UNCONDITIONALLY GUARANTEES
AND PROMISES TO PAY TO SEATTLE-FIRST NATIONAL BANK ("LENDER") OR ITS ORDER, IN
LEGAL TENDER OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, THE INDEBTEDNESS (AS THAT TERM IS
DEFINED BELOW) OF COEUR D'ALENE MINES CORPORATION ("BORROWER") TO LENDER ON THE
TERMS AND CONDITIONS SET FORTH IN THIS GUARANTY.  UNDER THIS GUARANTY, THE
LIABILITY OF GUARANTOR IS UNLIMITED AND THE OBLIGATIONS OF GUARANTOR ARE
CONTINUING.

DEFINITIONS.  The following words shall have the following meanings when used
              in this Guaranty:

      BORROWER.  The word "Borrower" means COEUR D'ALENE MINES CORPORATION.

      GUARANTOR.  The word "Guarantor" means COEUR GOLD NEW ZEALAND, LIMITED.

      GUARANTY.  The word "Guaranty" means this Guaranty between Guarantor
                 and Lender dated June 2,1994.

      INDEBTEDNESS.  The word "Indebtedness" means all of Borrower's
      indebtedness to Lender in its most comprehensive sense and includes
      without limitation all indebtedness, whether now or hereafter
      existing, whether arising from loan advances, interest, debts, lease
      obligations, other obligations, or liabilities of Borrower, or any of
      them, including judgments against Borrower, heretofore, now, or
      hereafter made, incurred, or created; whether voluntarily or
      involuntarily and however arising; whether due or not due, absolute or
      contingent, liquidated or unliquidated, determined or undetermined;
      whether Borrower may be liable individually or jointly with others, or
      primarily or secondarily, or as guarantor or surety; whether recovery
      upon such indebtedness may be or hereafter may become barred by any
      statute of limitations; and whether such indebtedness may be or
      hereafter may become otherwise unenforceable, and whether such
      indebtedness arises from transactions which may be voidable on account
      of infancy, insanity, ultra vires, or otherwise.
      
      LENDER.  The word "Lender" means SEATTLE-FIRST NATIONAL BANK, its
               successors and assigns.

NATURE OF GUARANTY.  Guarantor's liability under this Guaranty shall be open
and continuous for so long as this Guaranty remains in force.  Guarantor
intends to guarantee at all times the performance and prompt payment when due,
whether at maturity or earlier by reason of acceleration or otherwise, of all
Indebtedness.  Accordingly, no payments made upon the Indebtedness will
discharge or diminish the continuing liability of Guarantor in connection with
any remaining portions of the Indebtedness or any of the Indebtedness which
subsequently arises or is thereafter incurred or contracted.

DURATION OF GUARANTY.  This Guaranty will take effect when received by Lender
without the necessity of any acceptance by Lender, or any notice to Guarantor
or to Borrower, and will continue in full force until such time as Guarantor
notifies Lender in writing of Guarantor's election to revoke this Guaranty.
Guarantors written notice of revocation must be delivered to Lender at the
address of Lender listed above or such other place as Lender may designate in
writing.  Written revocation of this Guaranty will apply only to advances or
new Indebtedness created after actual receipt by Lender of Guarantors written
revocation.  This Guaranty will continue to bind Guarantor for all Indebtedness
incurred by Borrower or committed by Lender prior to receipt of Guarantors
written notice of revocation, including any extension, renewal, or modification
of the Indebtedness.  If Lender has extended credit to Borrower in the form of
one or more credit card accounts, Guarantor's promise with respect to
Borrower's Indebtedness under these accounts shall remain effective until
Lender actually receives at its Bankcard Services both of the following: (a)
written notice that Guarantor withdraws Guarantor's promise with respect to
credit card Indebtedness and (b) all cards issued under these credit card
accounts.  Any renewals, extensions, and modifications of the Indebtedness
which are granted after Guarantors revocation are contemplated under this
Guaranty and specifically will not be considered new Indebtedness. This
Guaranty shall bind the estate of Guarantor as to Indebtedness created both
before and after the death or incapacity of Guarantor, regardless of Lender's
actual notice of Guarantor's death.  Subject to the foregoing, Guarantor's
executor or administrator or other legal representative may terminate this
Guaranty in the same manner in which Guarantor might have terminated it and
with the same effect.  Release of any other guarantor or termination of any
other guaranty of the Indebtedness shall not affect the liability of Guarantor
under this Guaranty.  A revocation received by Lender from any one or more
Guarantors shall not affect the liability of any remaining Guarantors under
this Guaranty.  IT IS ANTICIPATED THAT FLUCTUATIONS MAY OCCUR IN THE AGGREGATE
AMOUNT OF INDEBTEDNESS COVERED BY THIS GUARANTY, AND IT IS SPECIFICALLY
ACKNOWLEDGED AND AGREED BY GUARANTOR THAT REDUCTIONS IN THE AMOUNT OF
INDEBTEDNESS, EVEN TO ZERO DOLLARS ($0.00), PRIOR TO WRITTEN REVOCATION OF THIS
GUARANTY BY GUARANTOR SHALL NOT CONSTITUTE A TERMINATION OF THIS GUARANTY.

GUARANTOR'S AUTHORIZATION TO LENDER.  Guarantor authorizes Lender, either
before or after any revocation hereof, WITHOUT NOTICE OR DEMAND AND WITHOUT
LESSENING GUARANTOR'S LIABILITY UNDER THIS GUARANTY, FROM TIME TO TIME: (A)
PRIOR TO REVOCATION AS SET FORTH ABOVE, TO MAKE ONE OR MORE ADDITIONAL SECURED
OR UNSECURED LOANS TO BORROWER, TO LEASE EQUIPMENT OR OTHER GOODS TO BORROWER,
OR OTHERWISE TO EXTEND ADDITIONAL CREDIT TO BORROWER; (B) TO ALTER, COMPROMISE,
RENEW, EXTEND, ACCELERATE, OR OTHERWISE CHANGE ONE OR MORE TIMES THE TIME FOR
PAYMENT OR OTHER TERMS OF THE INDEBTEDNESS OR ANY PART OF THE INDEBTEDNESS,
INCLUDING INCREASES AND DECREASES OF THE RATE OF INTEREST ON THE INDEBTEDNESS;
EXTENSIONS MAY BE REPEATED AND MAY BE FOR LONGER THAN THE ORIGINAL LOAN TERM;
(C) TO TAKE AND HOLD SECURITY FOR THE PAYMENT OF THIS GUARANTY OR THE
INDEBTEDNESS, AND EXCHANGE, ENFORCE, WAIVE, FALL OR DECIDE NOT TO PERFECT, AND
RELEASE ANY SUCH SECURITY, WITH OR WITHOUT THE SUBSTITUTION OF NEW COLLATERAL;
(D) TO RELEASE, SUBSTITUTE, AGREE NOT TO SUE, OR DEAL WITH ANY ONE OR MORE OF
BORROWER'S SURETIES, ENDORSERS, OR OTHER GUARANTORS ON ANY TERMS OR IN ANY
MANNER LENDER MAY CHOOSE; (E) TO DETERMINE HOW, WHEN AND WHAT APPLICATION OF
PAYMENTS AND CREDITS SHALL BE MADE ON THE INDEBTEDNESS; (F) TO APPLY SUCH
SECURITY AND DIRECT THE ORDER OR MANNER OF SALE THEREOF, INCLUDING WITHOUT
LIMITATION, ANY NONJUDICIAL SALE PERMITTED BY THE TERMS OF THE CONTROLLING
SECURITY AGREEMENT OR DEED OF TRUST, AS LENDER IN ITS DISCRETION MAY DETERMINE;
(G) TO SELL, TRANSFER, ASSIGN, OR GRANT PARTICIPATIONS IN ALL OR ANY PART OF
THE INDEBTEDNESS; AND (H) TO ASSIGN OR TRANSFER THIS GUARANTY IN WHOLE OR IN
PART.

GUARANTOR'S REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES.  Guarantor represents and warrants
to Lender that (a) no representations or agreements of any kind have been made
to Guarantor which would limit or qualify in any way the terms of this
Guaranty; (b) this Guaranty is executed at Borrower's request and not at the
request of Lender; (c) Guarantor has not and will not, without the prior
written consent of Lender, sell, lease, assign, encumber, hypothecate,
transfer, or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of Guarantor's
assets, or any interest therein; (d) Lender has made no representation to
Guarantor as to the creditworthiness of Borrower; (e) upon Lender's request,

                                 (CONTINUED)

information in form acceptable to Lender, and all such financial information
provided to Lender is true and correct in all material respects and fairly
presents the financial condition of Guarantor as of the dates thereof, and no
material adverse change has occurred in the financial condition of Guarantor
since the date of the financial statements and (f) Guarantor has established
adequate means of obtaining from Borrower on a continuing basis information
regarding Borrower's financial condition.  Guarantor agrees to keep adequately
informed from such means of any facts, events, or circumstances which might in
any way affect Guarantor's risks under this Guaranty, and Guarantor further
agrees that, absent a request for information, Lender shall have no obligation
to disclose to Guarantor any information or documents acquired by Lender in the
course of its relationship with Borrower.

GUARANTOR'S WAIVERS.  Except as prohibited by applicable law, Guarantor waives
any right to require Lender (a) to continue lending money or to extend other
credit to Borrower; (b) to make any presentment, protest, demand, or notice of
any kind, including notice of any nonpayment of the Indebtedness or of any
nonpayment related to any collateral, or notice of any action or nonaction on
the part of Borrower, Lender, any surety, endorser, or other guarantor in
connection with the Indebtedness or in connection with the creation of new or
additional loans or obligations; (c) to resort for payment or to proceed
directly or at once against any person, including Borrower or any other
guarantor; (d) to proceed directly against or exhaust any collateral held by
Lender from Borrower, any other guarantor, or any other person; (e) to pursue
any other remedy within Lender's power; or (f) to commit any act or omission of
any kind, or at any time, with respect to any matter whatsoever.

If now or hereafter (a) Borrower shall be or become insolvent, and (b) the
Indebtedness shall not at all times until paid be fully secured by collateral
pledged by Borrower, Guarantor hereby forever waives and relinquishes in favor
of Lender and Borrower, and their respective successors, any claim or right to
payment Guarantor may now have or hereafter have or acquire against Borrower,
by subrogation or otherwise, so that at no time shall Guarantor be or become a
"creditor" of Borrower within the meaning of 11 U.S.C. section 547(b), or any
successor provision of the Federal bankruptcy laws.

Guarantor also waives any and all rights or defenses arising by reason of (a)
any "one action" or "anti-deficiency" law or any other law which may prevent
Lender from bringing any action, including a claim for deficiency, against
Guarantor, before or after Lender's commencement or completion of any
foreclosure action, either judicially or by exercise of a power of sale; (b)
any election of remedies by Lender which destroys or otherwise adversely
affects Guarantor's subrogation rights or Guarantor's rights to proceed against
Borrower for reimbursement, including without limitation, any loss of rights
Guarantor may suffer by reason of any law limiting, qualifying, or discharging
the Indebtedness; (c) any disability or other defense of Borrower, of any other
guarantor, or of any other person, or by reason of the cessation of Borrower's
liability from any cause whatsoever, other than payment in full in legal
tender, of the Indebtedness; (d) any right to claim discharge of the
Indebtedness on the basis of unjustified impairment of any collateral for the
Indebtedness; (e) any statute of limitations, if at any time any action or suit
brought by Lender against Guarantor is commenced there is outstanding
Indebtedness of Borrower to Lender which is not barred by any applicable
statute of limitations; or (f) any defenses given to guarantors at law or in
equity other than actual payment and performance of the Indebtedness.  If
payment is made by Borrower, whether voluntarily or otherwise, or by any third
party, on the Indebtedness and thereafter Lender is forced to remit the amount
of that payment to Borrower's trustee in bankruptcy or to any similar person
under any federal or state bankruptcy law or law for the relief of debtors, the
Indebtedness shall be considered unpaid for the purpose of enforcement of this
Guaranty.

Guarantor further waives and agrees not to assert or claim at any time any
deductions to the amount guaranteed under this Guaranty for any claim of
setoff, counterclaim, counter demand, recoupment or similar right, whether such
claim, demand or right may be asserted by the Borrower, the Guarantor, or both.

GUARANTOR'S UNDERSTANDING WITH RESPECT TO WAIVERS.  Guarantor warrants and
agrees that each of the waivers set forth above is made with Guarantor's full
knowledge of its significance and consequences and that, under the
circumstances, the waivers are reasonable and not contrary to public policy or
law.  If any such waiver is determined to be contrary to any applicable law or
public policy, such waiver shall be effective only to the extent permitted by
law or public policy.

SUBORDINATION OF BORROWER'S DEBTS TO GUARANTOR.  Guarantor agrees that the
Indebtedness of Borrower to Lender, whether now existing or hereafter created,
shall be prior to any claim that Guarantor may now have or hereafter acquire
against Borrower, whether or not Borrower becomes insolvent.  Guarantor hereby
expressly subordinates any claim Guarantor may have against Borrower, upon any
account whatsoever, to any claim that Lender may now or hereafter have against
Borrower.  In the event of insolvency and consequent liquidation of the assets
of Borrower, through bankruptcy, by an assignment for the benefit of creditors,
by voluntary liquidation, or otherwise, the assets of Borrower applicable to
the payment of the claims of both Lender and Guarantor shall be paid to Lender
and shall be first applied by Lender to the Indebtedness of Borrower to Lender.
Guarantor does hereby assign to Lender all claims which it may have or acquire
against Borrower or against any assignee or trustee in bankruptcy of Borrower;
provided however, that such assignment shall be effective only for the purpose
of assuring to Lender full payment in legal tender of the Indebtedness.  If
Lender so requests, any notes or credit agreements now or hereafter evidencing
any debts or obligations of Borrower lo Guarantor shall be marked with a legend
that the same are subject to this Guaranty and shall be delivered to Lender.
Guarantor agrees, and Lender hereby is authorized, in the name of Guarantor,
from time to time to execute and file financing statements and continuation
statements and to execute such other documents and to take such other actions
as Lender deems necessary or appropriate to perfect, preserve and enforce its
rights under this Guaranty,

      the alteration or amendment.
      
      APPLICABLE LAW.  This Guaranty has been delivered to Lender and
      accepted by Lender in the State of Washington.  If there is a lawsuit,
      Guarantor agrees upon Lender's request to submit to the jurisdiction

      Lender's costs and expenses, including attorneys' fees and Lender's
      legal expenses, incurred in connection with the enforcement of this
      Guaranty.  Lender may pay someone else to help enforce this Guaranty,
      and Guarantor shall pay the costs and expenses of such enforcement.
      Costs and expenses include Lender's attorneys' fees and legal
      expenses whether or not there is a lawsuit, including attorneys' fees
      and legal expenses for bankruptcy proceedings (and including efforts
      to modify or vacate any automatic stay or injunction), appeals, and
      any anticipated post-judgment collection services.  Guarantor also
      shall pay all court costs and such additional fees as may be directed
      by the court.
      
      NOTICES.  Except for revocation notices by Guarantor, all notices
      required to be given by either party to the other under this Guaranty
      shall be in writing and shall be effective when actually delivered or
      when deposited in the United States mail, first class postage prepaid,
      addressed to the party to whom the notice is to be given at the
      address shown above or to such other addresses as either party may
      designate to the other in writing.  All revocation notices by
      Guarantor shall be in writing and shall be effective only upon deliver
      to Lender as provided above in the section titled "DURATION OF
      GUARANTY."  If there is more than one Guarantor, notice to any 
      Guarantor will constitute notice to all Guarantors.  For
      notice purposes, Guarantor agrees to keep Lender informed at all times
      of Guarantor's current address.

      construction so require; and where there is more than one Borrower
      named in this

                                 (CONTINUED)                          

      Guaranty or when this Guaranty is executed by more than one Guarantor,
      the words "Borrower" and "Guarantor" respectively shall mean all and
      any one or more of them.  The words "Guarantor," "Borrower," and
      "Lender" include the heirs, successors, assigns, and transferees of
      each of them.  Caption headings in this Guaranty are for convenience
      purposes only and are not to be used to interpret or define the
      provisions of this Guaranty.  If a court of competent jurisdiction
      finds any provision of this Guaranty to be invalid or unenforceable as
      to any person or circumstance, such finding shall not render that
      provision invalid or unenforceable as to any other persons or
      circumstances, and all provisions of this Guaranty in all other
      respects shall remain valid and enforceable.  It any one or more of
      Borrower or Guarantor are corporations or partnerships, it is not
      necessary for Lender to inquire into the powers of Borrower or
      Guarantor or of the officers, directors, partners, or agents acting or
      purporting to act on their behalf, and any Indebtedness made or
      created in reliance upon the professed exercise of such powers shall
      be guaranteed under this Guaranty.
      
      WAIVER.  Lender shall not be deemed to have waived any rights under
      this Guaranty unless such waiver is given in writing and signed by
      Lender.  No delay or omission on the part of Lender in exercising any
      right shall operate as a waiver of such right or any other right.  A
      waiver by Lender of a provision of this Guaranty shall not prejudice
      or constitute a waiver of Lender's right otherwise to demand strict
      compliance with that provision or any other provision of this
      Guaranty.  No prior waiver by Lender, nor any course of dealing
      between Lender and Guarantor, shall constitute a waiver of any of
      Lender's rights or of any of Guarantor's obligations as to any future
      transactions.  Whenever the consent of Lender is required under this
      Guaranty, the granting of such consent by Lender in any instance shall
      not constitute continuing consent to subsequent instances where such
      consent is required and in all cases such consent may be granted or
      withheld in the sole discretion of Lender.
      
EACH UNDERSIGNED GUARANTOR ACKNOWLEDGES HAVING READ ALL THE PROVISIONS
OF THIS GUARANTY AND AGREES TO ITS TERMS. IN ADDITION, EACH GUARANTOR
UNDERSTANDS THAT THIS GUARANTY IS EFFECTIVE UPON GUARANTOR'S EXECUTION AND
DELIVERY OF THIS GUARANTY TO LENDER AND THAT THE GUARANTY WILL CONTINUE UNTIL
TERMINATED IN THE MANNER SET FORTH IN THE SECTION TITLED "DURATION OF GUARANTY."
NO FORMAL ACCEPTANCE BY LENDER IS NECESSARY TO MAKE THIS GUARANTY EFFECTIVE. 
THIS GUARANTY IS DATED JUNE 2, 1994.
